Do You Have a Bright Child?
Are you looking for somewhere where they can meet up for fun and challenging activities with other children who show the same curiosity, creativity, high ability and drive (also known as high learning potential or gifted and talented)?
Are you looking for somewhere where you can talk to other parents about the joys and challenges of supporting a child with high learning potential?
Explorers Clubs are friendly local support groups run by parent volunteers for families of children with high learning potential. These groups offer bright children fun and challenging activity sessions designed to stimulate young minds; inspiring them to think creatively and critically and to explore, create and make. Activities may take place at a specific venue or be visits to external venues. The Explorers Clubs are branches of the charity Potential Plus UK, which has been supporting children of high ability for over 50 years.
Introduce your child to an Explorers club and watch them blossom in the company of like-minded children.
